  • Investigation of the Relationship Between Physical Activity Levels and
           Body Perception of Female and Male Individuals

    • Authors: Gülsün GÜVEN; Dilek YALIZ SOLMAZ
      Abstract: Aim: The aim of this study is to evaluate the physical activity levels and body perception levels of male and female individuals according to some variables and to examine the relationship between physical activity levels and body perceptions.Methods: A total of 300 students studying at the Faculty of Sport Sciences participated in the study. In the study, “Physical Activity Assessment Questionnaire Short Form (IPAQ)” and “Body Image Scale” were used. For the analysis of the study data, frequency, percentage, arithmetic mean and standard deviation values were calculated in the SPSS-23 package program. Chi-square, ANOVA and t-test were used to determine whether there was a difference between the variables in testing the data for the purpose of the research. Correlation analysis was performed to determine the relationship between physical activity and body image levels. Results: According to the findings of the study, there was no statistically significant difference between the physical activity levels and body image levels of the students according to gender, age, class levels, but there was a statistically significant difference between the physical activity levels and body image levels of the students in terms of the departments they studied. It was determined that there was a significant difference in the body perception levels of the students studying in the departments of coaching education, physical education and sports teaching and sports management, and this difference was in favor of the students studying in the coaching education department. A positive relationship was found between students' body perception and physical activity.Conclusion: The fact that the majority of the students in the faculty of sports sciences do high levels of physical activity and have a very positive body image can be considered as a positive result in terms of increasing the effectiveness of their professional practices. In addition, it is thought that a positive relationship level between physical activity and body image will have positive effects in terms of increasing general health.

  • Examination of Physical Activity and Emotional Status of University

    • Authors: Muhammed ŞAHİN
      Abstract: Aim: The main purpose of this research is to examine how measures taken against corona virus disease (COVID-19) affect the physical activity behavior of university students and to learn about the effect of physical activity on students’ emotional states.Methods: The sample of the study consists of 408 students whose data were collected by simple random sampling. In the study, the data was collected via an online survey. Personal data form, international physical activity questionnaire short form and positive and negative emotion scale were used to collect the data. T-test/Mann Whitney U, Chi-Square analysis and Manova analysis havewere used for hypothesis tests as well as descriptive statistics in statistical analyses considering the normality of the data. Finally, Cohen's D values were examined to determine the level of impact between dependent and independent variablesResults: According to research findings, based on the total weekly met score, 31.1% of students were inactive, 49.1% were minimally active, and 19.8% were sufficiently active. A significant difference was observed in the mood states of students depending on the level of physical activity. It was found that the average positive emotion score of female students was significantly higher compared to male students, while negative emotion and total physical activity levels were similar in males and females. Conclusion: As a result, it can be said that gender and grade are related to student’s physical activity levels. Moreover, student’s physical activity levels were found to be an influential factor in their mood states. It can be said that gender affects positive emotions, but it does not affect negative emotions and total physical activity levels.

  • Comparison of Motor Coordination Levels of Children With Down Syndrome and
           Normally Developed Children -Germany Case-

    • Authors: Ebubekir AKSAY
      Abstract: Aim: The primary aim of this study was to compare the motor coordination levels of primary school age children with Down Syndrome (DS) and normally developed children in the age group of 7-10 years. The secondary aim is to examine the effects of normal weight, excess weight, and obesity on motor coordination values. Methods: A total of 101 children of primary school age, 47 with Down Syndrome (37 boys / 10 girls) and 54 normally developed (27 boys / 27 girls) aged 7-10 participated in the study. In the determination of motor coordination values, the Körperkoordinationstest für Kinder (KTK), which consists of the subtests of stepping back, jumping one foot, jumping sideways, and stepping sideways, was used. The skewness-kurtosis values of the data and the normality analysis were examined; and the t-test was used in the comparison of two independent groups in the analysis of the normally distributed data; and one-way analysis of variance was used to compare two or more unrelated groups; and Bonferroni test, one of the post hoc tests, was used to determine the source of the difference between normal weight, overweight and obese groups.Results: According to the data obtained, it was determined that children with DS were overweight and obese compared to their normally developed peers, while all the tests conducted concluded that children with DS showed statistically lower overall motor performance than their normally developed peers (p<0,.05). However, girls showed lower motor coordination than boys (p<0.05), while normal-weight children achieved higher total motor coordination values than that of overweight and obese children (p<0.05). Conclusion: It is considered that the data obtained will provide important clues about the motor coordination values and body composition of children with DS and will contribute to taking precautions against the health risks of children with DS, who are more affected by a sedentary lifestyle compared to their normally developing peers.
